    I nearly tapped my last handshake on Channel 6 while using Bluestacks. As anyone who uses it knows, the controls are a pain in the **** using a touchpad and having the handshakes right in the landing zone is dangerous.

    Only two types of people......those that HAVE tapped it by accident and those that WILL tap it by accident.
    Done it twice myself on SquidPort and once on Channel 6. Sometimes I wonder just what it is that keeps me playing this somewhat bizarre game :roll:

    3 handshakes on a tile left, did only one tap, all gone!

    Edit: growing corn since a day or three. I hope it wont happen there.

    Just for clarity for the newer players, as I'm a little confused...

    Should you not collect on Squidport, Farm and Channel 6, and only collect on handshakes (always leaving 1)?

    Also - if you grow corn by accident, just put the farm in storage and it will cancel the crop.

    I don't think any of the friends I have keep hands open on Squidport. I've checked every time I do a run through friend's towns and haven't seen any to tap onto to help.

    I didn't actually know how to do this "glitch" myself until reading Phonedave's post above. Luckily I've had one sitting there recently while I focused on actually designing up my Krustyland.

    Why is everyone so upset about tapping their corn? I've been growing corn for a month and I can click on the farm with no problem. It just has the amount of time left like every other task. Am I missing something?

    They are talking about after the corn is ready. You are able to accumulate multiple handshakes in a manner similar to the tile tapper glitch. So if you tap the last handshake, you are out for another 90 days until you grow more corn.

    I haven't done it yet, but I'm just assuming I will. So this is a preemptive post. :x

    Was scoping the land out to see where I wanted to move things to and accidentally put me finger on the tile when trying to scroll the screen across.... Doh!

    Put another up to build, 2 days and change left... Oh well :)

    Joining the ranks on this thread, just knocked my tile and now I'm maxed out so no more xp boosting for me :cry:

    Completely blaming the cricket, been awake since 4am to see England's batting collapse. Sleep deprivation has got the better of me. (Apologies to non-English and non-Australian players who probably don't know what I'm on about)!
